We've now completed our first week on the Body Enlightenment System. Am I bored yet? Not in the least. I look forward to getting my daily message from Tera and Amy. I love getting emails from my Buddy Petra in Germany. I'M STUFFED!
Probably the best thing about BES is that its teaching us to plan. We're being forced to plan our meals, and plan our shopping. I think one of the biggest dangers we face is that in today's world its too easy to drive up to a window, order a filler, and move on without even thinking about what we just crammed in our stomachs.
Keely and I are discussing what we like and don't like about each of the recipes. Instead of her grabbing a frozen dinner, and me grabbing whatever I can find in the refrigerator, we're reconnecting on a basic level through our food intake.
I've added a couple of new links to my favorites you should check out. Kristen's Raw has some great looking recipe books that I'm looking forward to integrating into our daily date. Kristen is an Associate Raw Chef, and Instructor. She has attended the Living Light Culinary Arts Institute in Fort Bragg, California (sigh....).
The other is Raw Tiffin. The Tiffin is a traditional Thai lunch box. Caroline Jones offers a 2 tiered Tiffin. You can get the Tiffin in larger sizes, but I couldn't see doing that unless I was taking it to a party. The neat thing about the Tiffin is that it is stainless steel. No worries about your food leaching chemicals from the plastic.
What I really like about Caroline's site is that she has videos showing you how to make dishes to use in your Tiffin. She's made it a lot easier in using something so new to our culture.
Of course make sure you check out The Raw Divas, if you haven't already done so. The Divas are a wonderful way to introduce yourself to a healthy lifestyle, and a new chapter in your lives.
